Julia Hirschberg elected to the National Academy of Engineering
Professor Julia Hirschberg has been elected to the National Academy of Engineering (NAE), one of the highest professional distinctions awarded to an engineer. Hirschberg was cited by the NAE for her 'contributions to the use of prosody in text-to-speech and spoken dialogue systems, and to audio browsing and retrieval.' Her research in speech analysis uses machine learning to help experts identify deceptive speech, and even to assess sentiment and emotion across languages and cultures.

UC professor lifts the curtain on Rome's first imperial family
From Augustus to Nero, Romans treated the Julio-Claudian emperors like gods during their reigns and condemned them as monsters after their deaths. A new book by a University of Cincinnati classicist offers the first detailed study of how the only surviving literary witness to the dynasty's rise and fall reinterprets the history of Rome's first imperial family.
